Welcome to CDF’s

Pretty much what it says. You will need NTFS format to burn that big of a file on your D:drive.

Are you trying to burn a DVD or create an ISO image? You can burn directly from the Build mode to a burner just by switching the Output.

FAT32 cannot save a file bigger than 4GB - you need an NTFS partition.
There is a possibility to convert your FAT32 to NTFS under WinXP w/o losing data:

Start->run->cmd
then enter:
convert <partition> /FS:NTFS /x

I don’t know how safe this conversion is, I used this method to convert my HDD once and had not data loss or problems…

The only bad thing about NTFS is that win9x cannot see it and linux can only read from it. (maybe that changed already, don’t know)
